A350 XWB Painting Completed


Painting of the first A350 XWB MSN001 was completed as it emerged in its Airbus livery out from the paintshop in Toulouse.
This latest milestone brings MSN001 one step closer to its first flight.

The aircraft painting was completed in less than seven days and follows the recent completion of MSN001’s flight-test-instrumentation (FTI) verification.

Last month the aircraft underwent its engines installation, and passed a subsequent intensive phase of ground vibration tests.

MSN001 will soon start the final tests before its maiden flight this summer.
